Tietz left and headed to McDonald’s about 2 miles away, where Holland said he’d gone to pick up breakfast. Tietz said he viewed a video showing that Holland was there at 9:44 a.m. Under cross-examination from defense attorney Marsh Halberg, Tietz acknowledged that there are several stop lights and stop signs between the Hollands’ apartment and the McDonald’s.

Patrol officer Shane Klokonos said he took photos when he arrived. The jury of nine women and five men saw the first photos taken of Margorie Holland’s body, splayed face up on the tile floor. She was wearing pink sweatpants; her shirt had been opened by first responders and defibrillator pads covered her chest.

Klokonos took photos of the apartment upstairs and down, including the contents of a nightstand drawer. He also photographed a large abrasion on Margorie Holland’s elbow and dried blood on her forearm.

The trial before Dakota County District Judge Timothy J. McManus is expected to last about three weeks. On Tuesday, jurors are expected to hear the initial 911 call from Roger Holland and testimony from family members and the medical examiner.
